If your child can cut the turtle themselves, let them do it in this step. You can also help cut the turtle by cutting around the turtle in a large square. Your child can then have a smaller piece of paper to hold while cutting.

Go ahead and cut the mouth in half. This may seem like a strange part, but this is what will make the turtle talk when the job is done.

Now the fun part! Have your child glue the top part of the clothespin so he can add a mouth!

Go ahead and add a mouth to the clothespin. This is the beginning of assembling the turtle puppet.

You will glue the stem along the bottom of the clothespin. The idea is that when the clothespin opens and closes, it looks as if the turtle is speaking.
